Meet The Staff

Do you work with an awesome team? Of course you want to introduce them to your visitors.

Dr. John Riepenhoff

Dr. Riepenhoff was born and raised in Lima. He served in the US Navy for 5 years as a Hospital Corpsman. His last 2 years was as a pharmacy technician. After his discharge in 1992, he started working in a retail pharmacy. It was during that time that Dr. Riepenhoff saw that medications were being over-prescribed. It was then that he decided to follow his childhood dream of being a chiropractor.
Dr. Riepenhoff graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College in 2002 with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and a Doctor of Chiropractic Degree.
Dr. Riepenhoff began studying Nutrition Response Testing® in 2009. He has completed numerous courses in Clearwater, FL and is working towards becoming an Advanced Clinical Practitioner.
